Episode 2.9

Last time, the new kids of Are You Smarter Elementary helped a valedictorian get to the high-rent district, but she crashed on the $500,000 question, leaving her with $25,000 to wipe her tears with.

Will a smarty-pants be the first person NOT to say that he's not smarter than a 5th grader? Let's find out! He's a 40-year-old businessman and Mensa member from Miwok Elementary, JASON RAMSEY. He met his girlfriend at a Mensa meeting. She's also a Mensa member. But can he ace the test we have lined for him tonight?

First up to help is Olivia. Let's get it started in here.

1st Grade Music $1,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What is the 5th word in the lyrics of "The Star-Spangled Banner?"
a) Light
b) See
c) Red

Olivia is locked in. Jason locks in B. Jason is right and we're off and running.

1st Grade Grammar $2,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
How many singular nouns are in the following sentence?
"The girls were mad at the boys because the boys throw snowballs at them."

Trick question. There aren't any. Jason figures this out. He's right for $2000.

Olivia said... zero, zip, none.

Jason has an IQ of 143.

Next up to help is Nathan. Nathan knows what Mensa is...

2nd Grade US Geography $5,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Yosemite National Park is located in what US state?

Jason hazards a guess of California. Nathan said... the same thing. He can't save. He doesn't have to. They're both right!

He's comfortable with astronomy...

3rd Grade Astronomy $10,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
TRUE OR FALSE? The Milky Way galaxy contains more than 1 million stars.

Jason locks in his answer with true. ... Right again! It contains BILLIONS of stars.

Nathan has to return to his seat, so let's bring up Sierra. "Since I'm such a drama queen, I can go with 5th grade drama..."

But the next question comes from the Classroom Club at McKenna from St. Paul School just got her classmates a computer lab.

Now to the question...

2nd Grade Animal Science $25,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
TRUE OR FALSE? The humpback whale is cold-blooded.

Sierra's locked in. A humpback whale is a mammal... not a fish... One of the three traits of a mammal is being warm-blooded. Jason locks in FALSE...

The 5th graders said... false. He's got $25,000, because he's right! That's his to keep no matter what happens, but let's go for $50,000...

3rd Grade Social Studies $50,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
The US Declaration of Independence was written and signed in what year?

Jason's trying to hold on to his cheats as long as he can. He goes with 1776. He locks it in...

Sierra said... 1777.

Right... 1776!

Jason's batting 1000. Next up to help is Mr. Heck on Heelies, Cody.

4th Grade US History $100,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
US President Hayes was elected into office in 1876. What was his first name?

Jason's thinking about using one of his cheats. He wants to go with Rutherford... He locks it in.

Right again for $100,000!

5th Grade Science $175,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What precious metal has the symbol Ag on the periodic table of the elements?

Ag = argentum = silver. That's what Jason thinks, but is he right? He locks it in.

After a little showing off... He's right for $175,000!

We're down to the last classmate. It's Mackenzie. Let's do it.

4th Grade World Geography $300,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
What is the capital of Brazil?

Mackenzie is locked.

Jason uses his PEEK. He's locked into the question, but let's see what Mackenzie has to say. Jason wants to say that it's Brasilia. Mackenzie said... "Brasillia." He goes with it.... He's right!

Last question before the Million Dollar Question.

5th Grade Drama $500,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
"Two households, both alike in dignity" is the opening line to what Shakespearean play?

Mackenzie has locked in her answer. He used to read Shakespeare because his mother told him to. He locks in "Romeo & Juliet."

He still has a save. Mackenzie said... "Midsummer Night's Dream." He doesn't remember how THAT one starts.

Olivia said... "The City Mouse and the Country Mouse".

Sierra, the drama queen... has the right answer. "Romeo & Juliet"!

Jason is up $500,000. Now it's all about the Million Dollar Question. He has no help. He has no classmate to fall back on. Jason can see the category for the Million Dollar Question for free, but once he sees the question, he has to answer it.

The Million Dollar Subject is...


Not one of Jason's strong points. But he did get the earlier question on Brasilia. The crowd wants him to go for it. He thinks that if he blows it, his girlfriend is going to leave him.

Jason's going to play it safe and drop out of school. He does so with $500,000. But just for shiggles, let's see what the question was.

5th Grade World Geography MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION
Russia's longest land border is with what other country?

Jason would've guessed China... Ashnela, his girlfriend.. would've said the same thing.

They're both WRONG. Correct answer: Kazakhstan. But hey, at $500,000, you can afford to sacrifice some pride. And no offense to the Mensa members reading this, but I have always wanted to hear this coming out of one of your mouths...

"My name is Jason Ramsey. I may be a Mensa member, but I am not smarter than a 5th grader."

New player next time.
